Reporter Makes A Little Kid Cry

A Denver reporter made fun of a two year old's hair and called him a farm boy. The boy then started to cry. The reporter kept teasing the kid and then when he was told by the anchors back at the studio to stop making the child cry, the reporter wanted to hug the kid and the kid said no. Does this reporter still have a job today?

What a shithead. Granted, I don't think the kid actually understood the joke about his hair, but it was still pretty cruel. I'm guessing it was the creepy tone of voice that the reporter was using and his crazy eyes that made the kid cry.

Amber said...

I would've had the same reaction. What a spaz. That kid looked HORRIFIED, though I'm not sure he got the Einstein joke. Because he's 2.

Frufra said...

That dude is a classic local news jackass. But then I watched the newscaster blooper reel that followed this clip, and it was pretty damn funny. I could be finding it extra-funny because I'm avoiding work, but still - pretty good.

Does that baby not have pants on? I'm assuming its cold there since everyone else is wearing a jacket.

That guy was a douche tho.

Frufra said...

Ok, rejected, at the risk of scaring you off from parenting, here's what I think happened to the boy's pants - he probably had a diaper blowout OR a drastic spill that rendered his britches unusable. It happens. He doesn't look cold, but he does look scared to the dipshit all up in his personal space.

Did I mention I'm avoiding work this morning?

Frufra said...

*of the dipshit*

rejectedcarebear said...

Frufra- I am also avoiding work today! Yay for slackers! Despite the bambino in my avi, i am childless and that is a very good explanation for why he would be pants-less.

OT- I'm taking a week off from work next month to watch my niece so I'll be exposed to all the disgusting diapers and baby spit up. This is the cheapest form of BC.

Frufra said...

Be ready, sweet auntie. Them little cute babies can blow poop all the way up their backs and into their hair. Sorry I just got so super-real with you, but I felt you needed a reality slap to be mentally prepared :-).

Just remember - if you can't cram it in the washing machine, just throw it in the trash - that's what money is for. And babies themselves are very washable. And their supreme sweetness and cuteness makes it all worth it. But they will test you :-).

Anyone who is not nice to a child needs punched in the face. I gladly volunteer.

Frufra said...

Word, shauniebear. We need to form a Momma vigilante squad!

Agent**It said...

Much ado about a big poo !

rejectedcarebear said...

I used to be a nanny but that was a decade ago. I've been getting refresher courses in babes every weekend so I can be prepared. Luckily I have an amazing SIL who isn't a paranoid freak about her baby- I'm still afraid I'm gonna break her!

Frufa and shauniebear

I'm designing our t-shirts now (berets optional)

shauniebear said...

Heck yes, Sunny and Frufra! We need some chic ass kicking shirts! I also have a great pair of heels that would be perfect for the whooping ;)

Frufra said...

Sunny - yay! I'll wear the beret for extra power!

rejected - oh, good - you are ready if you've done nanny duty. Or should I say nanny doody (ha ha)?

Frufra said...

And if you have on the Momma Squad shirt, the police just high-five you when they're called to the screen of your latest beat down. How awesome would that world be?

Frufra said...

*scene, not screen. Sheesh!

lostathome said...

Lol that kid looks creepy

Rose said...

That kid has already perfected the side eye glare at two. Brilliant.

iheartgoss said...

I actually don't think the reporter was a jerk at all, just a bit of a dweeb with a bad sense of humor. The kid was just scared that a stranger was talking to him and invading his personal space. He obviously didn't think the guy was making fun of him. Seriously Enty, you had to make this a big deal?

Pookie said...

poor little baby! what a dumbass reporter. i am willing to bet he doesn't have many friendships/relationship outside blow-up companions.

Agent**It said...

The reporter had been talking to the child before he went live. Entward doesn't like details:)

The Dude said...

I am from Colorado where this was filmed and Dan Daru is the local reporter, it is his typical schtick. There was no malice and was not being a jerk just doing his thing. I don't understand why this was a story, but maybe since I've seen his reports before it wasn't a big deal to me.

auntliddy said...

What u said.

dia papaya said...

@Carebear - Congrats on the week off! Super Auntie to the rescue! Enjoy every moment :)

Now about these Berets? I would like to be the official MVS mascot and rock that beret! I do love the babies :)

@Agent - I'm so stealing that line for later!!!

Having been a Mother and now as a Grandmother, I am a little over protective of children, so I want to join your squad. Some people just do not realize it is not cool to go up to a child they do not know. When I take Izzy places people will talk to her, but in less they are friends I've only had the elderly come close. Even when we meet up with another child we talk from a few feet away and only with a parent around.

I would love to beat the **** out of people who hurt children. I could show you some moves that would really hurt the scumbags.

g.strathmore said...

I think the boy was just scared because there was a big weird guy all up in his grill.

Frufra said...

old ;ady, you are aces in my book. I'd love to learn those moves. Hug your sweet granddaughter for me :-).

KaySea said...

I'm not a fan of Dan Daru simply because his reports are typically pretty idiotic ... but he definitely didn't do this intentionally. Not a new item IMO ...

Brooke said...

OMG Frufra! I so remember when my oldest used to do that!!! I've had to cut onsies off of a squirmy baby just so I didn't get poop in her face because she could poop up the front of her diaper, too.

MadLyb said...

I'd cry too, if that evil spawn of Ted Baxter got in my face. Poor little kid. He is adorables!

Chismosa Street said...

It's not the joke that made the baby cry. It's the stranger and camera in front of him. He already have the shocked/mad look on his face even before he was approached by the reporter.
